Birch trees

These past few days, when not dreaming about mountains, I have been painting from the windows.  These gnarly birch trees stand next to the farmhouse.  There is ever-present Laugarvatnsfjall rising up behind the trees.

The days are getting shorter and shorter, the mornings are dark, and the evening comes on very fast.  I have to start thinking about leaving…sigh.  I have a few days left to paint, no need to think about leaving just yet… I’ll keep on painting these trees, the mountain, the darkness  …and make time stand still just a little while longer.

    Wonderful paintings. Can understand you’re sad about leaving soon. But you had a great and more time than the most people who visit Iceland. You’re so blessed. Have a happy painting day! 🙂

    I can’t believe your time is almost done – it has really flown by. I’ve loved following your blog – it’s the next best thing to being there myself. I can’t wait to hear your stories when you return! Love you! (And boy do I love those brave birches….)
